I was very impressed by the writing in this book. Having a 16-year-old daughter, and having once been a teenager myself, the author did an amazing job of writing from the perspective of a high school senior. The story is told from the perspectives of two high schoolers - one who surived the car crash, and on who didn't - as well as the police officer who investigated the crash. The officer obviously has some more involvement with either the crash or the 5 kids involved, but you don't know what that is until the end of the book. While I was very immpressed with the writing, the story itself was not one I would normally have been very interested in and I probably wouldn't have finished the book if it weren't the book assigned for my book club this month.

O'Nan nods to Ray Bradbury in this Halloween tale of death and guilt and recompense, as the victims of a fatal auto crash watch its first anniversary approach, sweeping the survivors into a deadly vortex.

An interesting story, told entirely from the point of view of ghosts. Kind of creepy, but not really scary.

It was fair. I had to focus to keep my attention to the story. It would be alright if there were nothing else to read.

The story just seemed to move too slow for me, I ended up not listening to the entire audio book.

A rather convoluted story of and accident that kills 3 teenagers. The ghosts of the dead teenagers tell the story as they torment those who lived...
